As part of the'Creating the Spectacle!' project for the London 2012 Festival, the Freewheeling Team produced a series of live Art events on Portland, Dorset. We collaborated extensively with local schools and communities to bring these unique events to the public, preceding the Olympics & leading up to the Paralympics. We presented a Live Art event at the mouth of the Fleet Lagoon & 2 performances of the Underwater Wheelchair in the pool at Osprey Leisure Centre with an invited poolside audience. We also had an underwater audience that we trained to dive just before the performances. Hundreds of local people, including children took part in the events & we are most grateful to the volunteers for all their support.
